The difference between a million, a billion, and a trillion.
Most people don’t really think about this. They throw around the words “a million things to do today” or “a billion dollars” and don’t really know the difference or think there isn’t much of a difference.
Let’s put into perspective by using a measurement of time…the humble second.
1 million seconds is 11.5 days. Not too bad, right. Easily imaginable.
Let’s move onto a billion.
1 billion seconds is 31.7 YEARS. Wow! That is a huge difference from just a few days.
Now what about a trillion? Just a few more years, right?
1 trillion seconds is 31,700 years!!
So the next time you use the words million, billion, and trillion, take a second (see what I did there?) and think about the difference.
